The accomplishment is impressive since the book did not start selling until late October.

Despite its hardcover success, the biography of Jobs ranks No. 3 on Amazon's Kindle bookstore.

The Kindle bestsellers so far are “Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins and, at No. 2, “The Litigators” by John Grisham.
